Our Virtual Facilitator Trainer Certification (VFTC) course is designed to maximize their virtual training capabilities of trainers and facilitators.

Are you serious about maximizing your virtual training capabilities? Do you want a more rigorous learning experience to ensure that you know how to make online learning more engaging? Can you benefit from professional certification as part of your career development?

The Virtual Facilitator Trainer Certification course may be right for you.

Learn how to:

  • Engage learner attention and participation in virtual training
  • Design effective online synchronous exercises using the web conference interaction tools
  • Design blended training solutions with interactive virtual training exercises
  • Describe virtual facilitation best practices
  • Increase learning transfer before, during, and after the facilitated online learning session
  • Develop and facilitate a 20-minute online learning experience for peers in this course

The VFTC course leads participants through a four-week, hands-on training experience. You will learn how to design and deliver powerful, high impact virtual training enhanced with interactive and engaging activities. The course includes:

  • Three synchronous facilitated webinars (4.5 hours)
  • Collaborative, self-paced assignments at the NetSpeed Fast Tracks™ website (12 – 20 hours)
  • A private coaching session to prepare for each participant's trainback (45 minutes)

A NetSpeed Master Trainer provides feedback on your assignments, models effective facilitation practices, and provides detailed feedback on your 20-minute trainback.

This course was extremely helpful for our newly established learning and development team. We have varying levels of experience and unique skill sets; the virtual facilitator program put additional tools in each of our toolkits. It also served to set standards that we will follow for all virtual and blended training.

The expertise presented was phenomenal, the sharing of experiences in class was helpful, and the blended learning format of the course helped me assimilate the content. I could use everything I learned in my work immediately!
